On joining the series HRVY said, “Being on Strictly is going to be such an amazing experience and I’m so thankful to be taking part this year. I think my mum is more excited that she’ll be able to see me every Saturday night now.”

Commenting on taking part Jamie commented, “Here we go again, hopefully this time I can last long enough so my mum can see me dance. The reason I’m doing it, is to make my mum proud but all I did last year was make her even more disappointed. Let’s change that this year, can’t wait!!”

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One this autumn with a shortened run due to the on-going pandemic.
